Simon Cowell is back home after having surgery on his broken back last week. That’s what a friend of the ‘America’s Got Talent’ jury member tells ‘People’. He was able to walk a few days after the operation and has now been given permission to leave the hospital.

“He is very happy to be back home with his family in the fresh sea air”

“He is very happy to be back home with his family in the fresh sea air. He has been working a bit this week, but he also knows that he must give his back time to recover from the operation.”

The 60-year-old Brit had taken a bad hit last week when he took a test ride on an electric bicycle, breaking his back in several places. Following the incident, he shared the advice with his followers to read the manual of an electric bicycle when they buy one.
